Following broader discussions about diversifying and renewing theatre audiences, made more pressing in the age of COVID, this roundtable explored the partnership and potential points of connection between theatres and audience researchers. It also advanced critical discussions in audience studies by thinking through how we invite, imagine, and cast Ontario audiences.
The event featured a moderated discussion with Ontario Artistic Directors, including Theatre Passe Muraille’s Marjorie Chan, MT Space’s Pam Patel, and b current’s marcel stewart about engaging audiences, followed by light catered reception!
We’d like to thank our major sponsor, the Department of English and Drama at the University of Toronto Mississauga for having make this event possible.
